What?! I've not followed the whole thread, so please forgive when I ask in the
middle: What's wrong from using ap_make_sub_pool(NULL)?  We use it now both in
Apache-SSL and mod_ssl for preserving private keys over the 1st->2nd init
round and over server restarts. When this is wrong, what's the correct way,
Dean? We've seeking for solutions for a long time and this private pool was
the best we could find. Hmmmmm....
